UTILIZATION

The handle is typical of a 59, I tried an original, it's practically the same thing, a little thinner than a rounded 50's serial, it is ideal for all hands, even small ones.
the set up was good for pulling the original Gibson 10-46, I change for 9-42. cellulose varnishes tend to stick with sweat in summer, but mainly because of the Japanese climate (I live in Tokyo) is the only negative I can find.

SOUNDS

For all styles of music, can be less for the metal, the bridge pickup is slightly less potent than the handle. but the sound is very balanced, very sensitive and subtle, you hear exactly what your fingers are. Plugged into a Marshall 1959 HW or a Fender Vibralux is a machine back in time ...
but connected to a Boogie or a Carvin and the sound is modern.

OVERALL OPINION

I play the guitar for 30 years, I have other Gibson Les Paul Standard with Bigsby, 1275 EDS, SG standard. This one is the best, of course it is expensive, about 600,000 yen in Japan, although it does not play alone, it makes you become a better musician, your sound, your personality changes to the guitar sounds. It is very transparent, subtle, sensitive. All these qualities make this guitar is finally not so dear as that. I often read that the instruments are too expensive, that manufacturers are thieves that on the backs of poor musicians, but good instruments have always been expensive, a Les Paul originally was expensive already. $ 300 in 1960.
surely I would do the same choice.
